Marine Corps Naval cannon project #7: Glue up and test fit.

07-28-2016 08:11 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 1 comment »

Yesterday and today were big days. Our shop welder made some steel plates and tapped & died some holes to receive the 1/2” all thread. I mortised out an area for them to go on the bottom of the top main runner. Then I glued the main runners together and let them cook over night. Today I put everything together and test fit the cannon in the carriage. Fit like a glove! I did have to notch out the elevation plate so it would sit lower. I also cut down the elevation wedge to make the c...

Healing Hand Journal #1: How I almost lost my fingers **Warning Graphic Images**

07-28-2016 04:25 PM by chaneg | 7 comments »

I am fairly new to this website, and new to the furniture making hobby, but I am not new to woodworking or power tools in general. I have been using this same table saw for over 15 years now. On July 10th 2016, I had a shop accident with the table saw. I did not have a blade guard on the saw (Never do), nor was I using push sticks or grippers or anything like that. That was my big mistake. I was ripping a piece of 4/4 cherry down to 1 5/8” pieces. On my final pass thru the ...

Magnetic Clamp Pads

07-28-2016 03:54 PM by Kent Shepherd | 8 comments »

I thought I would start offering quick woodworking tips, and try to do them more often. Running Shepherd Tool & Supply by myself can sometimes be a little overwhelming, but I really want to share some of my experience on a larger scale. I was doing a glue-up the other day and became frustrated trying to protect the already sanded legs on a table base. The long side is about 60”, so I had trouble reaching both ends to keeps my scraps in place for pads. I managed to get it done but...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #4: Time to make some sawdust

07-27-2016 01:30 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

I don’t have any 8/4 or 12/4 to make the legs and side aprons. Online 12/4 X36 square blanks are very expensive ($40 on Rockler) plus most of them are glued up. So I decided to make them from existing 6/4 and 4/4 stock. When the changes were made, I needed roughly 20 BF of 4/4 and 20 BF of 6/4 cherry for the legs, side aprons, various stretchers, as well as the drawer fronts and the back rail. I also needed some 5/4 square walnut spindles and some 4/4 square walnut spindles. The 4/...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #6: Another boring adventure.

07-26-2016 08:57 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 2 comments »

Today I finished up mortising the crossmember in and bored them for all thread. (Thanks for the tip tblank). I also routered a groove in the elevation platform for the elevation wedge to slide on. Then I did a dry fit of everything. I have a few other things to do on this project but I should be able to start glueing tomorrow! Elevation platform and wedge. Here I am marking the main runners for boring be taping this all thread thru my crossmember. Time to test fit! Front Rear
